Il Faé Prosecco

Il Faé produces two distinct wines. We produce a Cabernet Sauvignon, and the main wine of the area - the Prosecco.

Prosecco di Valdobbiadene

Prosecco is an indigenous vine, intensely cultivated on our hills since the early nineteenth century. Its origin is now lost in time, but appears to be linked to "Pucino", a famous and much valued wine in Roman times.

Bianco del Faé wine lableIt is not an accident that this vine is only to be found here, as this area creates the ideal condition for producing a light wine with an intense and captivating bouquet. The hills are formed of marbles, sandstones and conglomerates, with numerous south-facing slopes and a climate characterised by abundant rainfall, and mild temperatures from April to October. The length of the summer, and the warm temperatures in the summer allow for a long ripening season.

Sparkling Prosecco DOC

The average age of our vines is 7 years old, and each vine produces 3.5 – 4.2kg of grapes on average.

The wine is made by a soft squeeze of the grapes and a fermentation with selected yeasts at controlled temperatures. The wines should ideally be served at a temperature of 7-9 °C.
